Wardrobe Wednesday: The Skinny

I'll be the first to admit that I jumped on the skinny pant bandwagon a little late. Although I'm petite, I also have some curves so I just didn't think that I had the body type to wear them. In fact, I didn't even try them on!

Thankfully I finally tried on a pair last year. And I feel in love!! Not only with dark skinny jeans, but black skinny jeans (love my stretchy pair from Citizens of Humanity- they feel like leggings!), skinny cords, skinny white pants and skinny camel pants.
These camel ones from 7 for All Mankind are fabulous. With knee high boots or Tory Burch flats they are super cute! In person they are more of a khaki color that what appears in the photo (at least the pair that I got). I'm a person who tends to mostly wear solid colors, so I have paired them with white, black, brown and rich jewel tones like deep purple.
Although I am open to a good skinny pant, I don't think I'll be able to pull off the skinny cargo or the red/black style above. A little to edgy for me!

Are you all skinny pant fans? What's your favorite way to wear them: with flats, booties, knee boots or something I haven't thought of?

  1. I love them with everything! I love how the same pair of jeans can be so versatile, worn with flat boots for day and be dressed up with platform pumps for a night out:) Dark wash skinnies are my favorite, although I love black, and even colored, ones too! I actually love the red/black style on here with a black top!
